Available in two standard versions


Landbox® Bio

Com­post­a­ble bio-fleece (starch-based)
Dis­po­sal as a who­le in orga­nic was­te (DIN EN 13432 certified)

Landbox® Duo

Thin plastic coa­ting (PE)
Dis­po­sal as a who­le in resi­du­al waste

Our insu­la­ti­on pack­a­ging made of pure straw is not only a real eye-cat­cher, but also scores with an insu­la­ti­on per­for­mance that has so far had only been known from expan­ded poly­sty­re­ne. Up to 65 hours under 4°C – even at sum­mer-like out­side tem­pe­ra­tures.
Using methods wea­ned from food tech­no­lo­gy, we use straw fibres in their pure form and pro­cess them in an extre­me­ly ener­gy-effi­ci­ent, cli­ma­te-neu­tral man­ner and without any other addi­ti­ves. Your cus­to­mers recei­ve pro­bab­ly the purest straw in the world — for dis­po­sal in orga­nic was­te or in the gar­den, of course.
The Land­box® is mois­tu­re regu­la­ting and shock absor­bing. The straw comes from far­mers in the regi­on. We moni­tor every step of the pro­cess from gro­wing to harvesting.
In July 2016, the Land­box®was hono­u­red by the Bava­ri­an Minis­try of Agri­cul­tu­re as an “out­stan­ding pro­duct based on rene­wa­ble raw mate­ri­als” ( press release ). An inter­na­tio­nal patent app­li­ca­ti­on has been filed for the pro­duct and process.

Space-saving delivery*

Due to the modu­lar design of the Land­box®, up to three times more boxes fit on a pal­let com­pa­red to set-up poly­sty­re­ne boxes. No air is trans­por­ted, and the pal­let dimen­si­ons are used in the best pos­si­ble way.

64 Landboxes®/palett
24 set-up expan­ded poly­sty­re­ne boxes/palett

- 1 Euro / Box during transport*

Using the Land­box® saves up to 1 Euro/box com­pa­red to set-up expan­ded poly­sty­re­ne boxes. The lar­ger the volu­me of the pack­a­ging, the grea­ter the savings during transport.

Land­box®: 0,55 Euro/pc

*Cal­cu­la­ti­ons based on examples


  • Straw is a by-pro­duct of the grain har­vest. It is cur­r­ent­ly hard­ly used and does not com­pe­te with food pro­duc­tion. Straw is an excel­lent insu­la­ting mate­ri­al with a simi­lar­ly low ther­mal con­duc­ti­vi­ty value as Sty­ro­foam. It has the­re­fo­re been used to insu­la­te buil­dings for over 100 years.
  • As insu­la­ti­on pack­a­ging, straw has the advan­ta­ge that it regu­la­tes moisture.
  • Due to the good res­to­ring for­ce of straw, even shock- and pres­su­re-sen­si­ti­ve goods can be ship­ped safe­ly protected.

The use of addi­ti­ves such as pre­ser­va­ti­ves or adhe­si­ves is com­ple­te­ly avoided in the pro­duc­tion of the Land­box®. The con­su­mer recei­ves a pure­ly natu­ral pro­duct that can be dis­po­sed of without any pro­blems or used in a house­hold envi­ron­ment, for examp­le as bed­ding or in the gar­den. The panels can be easi­ly loo­se­ned up for this purpose.

  • The coo­ling capa­ci­ty depends on the out­side tem­pe­ra­tu­re, the num­ber of coo­ling ele­ments, the tem­pe­ra­tu­re of the goods, the inter­nal volu­me and the type of pack­a­ging arran­ge­ment (in par­ti­cu­lar, avoid voids).
  • The Land­box® reaches a tem­pe­ra­tu­re ran­ge of ‑1°C to 4°C for up to 65 hours.

The high insu­la­ting effect of the Land­box® is based on the fact that all phy­si­cal mecha­nisms of heat trans­port, name­ly heat con­duc­tion, con­vec­tion and heat radia­ti­on are effec­tively mini­mi­sed. Thus, a ther­mal con­duc­ti­vi­ty value simi­lar to that of expan­ded poly­sty­re­ne is achieved.

We offer two dif­fe­rent ver­si­ons of the Landbox®:

  • Land­box® Duo for sepa­ra­te dis­po­sal of straw core and wrap­ping or both in resi­du­al waste.
  • Land­box® Bio for dis­po­sal as a who­le in orga­nic waste.
  • The Land­box® is pro­du­ced with mini­mum ener­gy con­sump­ti­on, using only green electri­ci­ty from hydro­power. All com­pon­ents are bio­de­grad­able. The raw mate­ri­al straw is purcha­sed from local farmers.
  • As the land­box con­sists of indi­vi­du­al panels, it is important that the Land­box® clo­ses well and panels are arran­ged in a per­fect fit. The panels are manu­fac­tu­red with a small over­si­ze so that they can be inser­ted using just a litt­le pressure.
  • In gene­ral, the coo­led space should be kept as small as pos­si­ble. Unfil­led inner volu­me must be stuf­fed with fil­ling material.

The straw is grown espe­cial­ly for us accord­ing to spe­cial spe­ci­fi­ca­ti­ons, so that each step of the pro­cess can be com­ple­te­ly con­trol­led. Befo­re pro­ces­sing, it is micro­bio­lo­gi­cal­ly tes­ted and only used in per­fect con­di­ti­on. The pro­ces­sing pro­ce­du­re ensu­res that the Land­bo­xes® are hygie­ni­cal­ly clean. Inde­pen­dent insti­tu­tes con­ti­nuous­ly check this.

Dry ice works per­fect­ly in com­bi­na­ti­on with the Landbox®.

  • We recom­mend food-safe fil­ling paper or air cushions.
  • Fil­ling mate­ri­al based on starch is unsui­ta­ble becau­se it sticks easi­ly in damp conditions.

Consumer opinions from the internet about Landpack packaging

Gre­at, safe pack­a­ging, the most sen­si­ble we have recei­ved so far.

Karl Z., Sep­tem­ber 2021

Bot­tom line: Gre­at! It is also sui­ta­ble for gui­nea pigs and other pets that need straw, by the way. Pri­ce can­not be under­cut — in any pet store straw cos­ts much more money.

Rüdi­ger S., 26.04.2021

I lik­ed the new straw pack­a­ging very much becau­se it is also easy to dis­po­se of.
The meat stays in the pack­a­ging in a gre­at con­di­ti­on and does not have to be por­tio­ned and fro­zen on the spot.

Rein­hard M., 10.08.2017

Very gre­at pro­ducts, prac­ti­cal and at the same time very attrac­ti­ve pack­a­ging. With plea­su­re again

Kat­ja S., 27.12.2016

I can only warm­ly recom­mend “Genuss­hand­wer­ker”, ever­ything is just right. The pro­duct is of very good qua­li­ty. The pack­a­ging uni­que. If every ship­ment worked like this, the world would be a much clea­ner place. Bra­vo, no envi­ron­men­tal sinners.

Til­ly K., 17.12.2016

Gre­at pack­a­ging and very good qua­li­ty of the goods.

Ingrid W., 11.08.2021

I just wan­ted to brief­ly express my enthu­si­asm for the new pack­a­ging stra­te­gy, with the straw packs for ref­ri­gera­ted goods.

Cus­to­mer of New Eng­land Biolabs 

The­re is sim­ply not­hing to be done bet­ter about the pack­a­ging. The cold packs were still fro­zen when the par­cel arri­ved, so you can be sure that the cold chain was not inter­rup­ted by the delivery.

Gerald L., 14.06.2017
As always pro­ducts in excel­lent qua­li­ty. Espe­cial­ly the shoul­der of salt mar­sh lamb — a deli­cacy. I think the sus­tainab­le pack­a­ging is gre­at, the goods arri­ve well chil­led. The com­pos­ter is hap­py about the straw and the water is also well recei­ved. Recom­mend­a­ble at any time.
Kers­tin O., 20.04.2017

Ever­ything per­fect — gre­at goods, inno­va­ti­ve packaging

Moni P., 28.03.2017
I am total­ly satis­fied, the deli­ve­ries are always on time, the goods are super packed (gre­at idea — card­board, straw and fro­zen water) and I don’t need to say anything about the qua­li­ty. Gra­de 1
Rita S., 17.02.2017

I just wan­ted to brief­ly express my enthu­si­asm for the new pack­a­ging stra­te­gy, with the straw packs for ref­ri­gera­ted goods.

Cus­to­mer of Fri­sche Para­dies, Janu­a­ry 2021

We are qui­te exci­ted about their ref­ri­gera­ted ship­ping with straw. Gre­at idea!

Cus­to­mer of New Eng­land Biolabs 

Pack­a­ging is insu­la­ted with pres­sed straw ins­tead of sty­ro­foam. Very good. Nevertheless, coo­ling accus had not defros­ted by the evening. Then I could spread the straw on my plants.

Rena­te K., 11.07.2017

We have never recei­ved such per­fect­ly and lovin­g­ly packa­ged goods as from the “Dorf­krug”. Sim­ply unique

Petra W., 22.04.2017

From the order to the deli­very of the pro­duct I would like to award the full stars.
Super was also the pack­a­ging with the straw pla­tes, ins­tead of styrofoam.
You can use the straw for tinkering.

Hel­ga E., 21.12.2016

Ever­ything was excel­lent­ly packa­ged and arri­ved in flaw­less condition!

Vic­to­ria K., Decem­ber 2020

We have deli­ber­ate­ly avoided tra­di­tio­nal sty­ro­foam boxes & are proud to use pack­a­ging based on 100% rene­wa­ble resources.

Metz­ge­rei Heinmann 

I would par­ti­cu­lar­ly like to prai­se the new envi­ron­ment­al­ly friend­ly pack­a­ging. I have alrea­dy prai­sed the pro­duct qua­li­ty and the price/performance ratio several times. Keep up the good work, we wish the team every success

Jür­gen L., 01.06.2017

Goods deli­ve­r­ed very well pro­tec­ted. Per­so­nal, hand­writ­ten let­ter was enc­lo­sed with the ship­ment. Would order again and again there.

Edel­traud K., 16.01.2017

I was very impres­sed by the eco­lo­gi­cal coo­ling packaging :-)

Sina, 19.12.2016

As expec­ted, the pro­duct was super deli­cious. I was most impres­sed by the pack­a­ging, on the hot­test days of the year ever­ything arri­ves well coo­led by UPS. And then also in orga­nic pack­a­ging. Super class
